      I like your new avatar! So cute.

       

      I got the cat and you got the dog.

       

      I think I am packing it in early tonight anyway. Too depressing with the Lakers. My brain is fried and Lonzo's dad already said tonight that he wants his two sons on the Lakers.:yuk:

    3. Jules

      Jules

      his other two sons I mean.

       

      Whatever........when Bogart said we'll always have Paris. Well we will always have the past of the Lakers. RIP.

       

      I also like the Celtics chances a lot next year but it depends a lot on what they do in FA to see if they could win the East. I love Lebron but it just is too painful at times to see him demolished in the finals now.

      Jules

      Also I have been forced in the last year to sorta even go for Boston at times due to people I know offline.

       

      So.........sometimes we both do a bit of this too and already have. lmao

       

       

       

      And in a way it's taboo since Boston/L.A. have always had the historical rivalry so it's a huge slap in the face to the Lakers.

       

      And since Boston did get jobbed in game 7 of the finals with KG I sometimes still feel really bad.

       

      Anyway I am done, promise. I got to shut up and get my butt ready for bed to get up tomorrow.

  18. I've been reading Stephen King again. Just finished "The Stand", and am currently reading 'Misery". For those who are into King, I'm pondering now what would happen if Trashman man met Annie Wilkes. Then there is Randall Flagg. Maybe I have too much time on my hands......

      What's your favorite King novel? Just curious. Or book to movie adaptation? 

    2. teganslaw

      teganslaw

      I have several favorite novels: "The Stand"; "Misery" and King's newer book, "Revival". 

       

      As far as book to movie adaptation: "The Stand" miniseries. The film "Misery" wasn't quite as good as the book, but Kathy Bates hit it out of the park as far as acting. I also liked the movie "The Shining." 

       

  19. Final "black hole" of the off-season - leading up to training camp & the pre-season !!

  20. Happy Father's Day to all the Fathers out there and please remember the ones that are not with us any longer!

      Oh my.......vacated in 2014 after judge ruled he was not given a fair trial.......so he was basically lynched, and the possible REAL murderer of the two girls remained free. Terrible.

      Wow... What an awful story about George Stinney. Unfortunately convictions like that were very common back in those days. It is very sad to read.

       

      In 2005, the Supreme Court found it unconstitutional to execute individuals under age 18.

      Happy belated birthday!

  24. Any plans for Father's Day? My father's birthday and Father's Day BTW, are about on the same day. He does not like it. Just going to have family over for a BBQ. As dad loves everything and anything BBQ. He never met a BBQ he never liked LOL!

      I agree with your Dad!  I am going to pay some homage to my Father who passed almost 3 years ago.  Then rejoice in the fact that my Daughter gets to spend it with me....

    2. southwest1

      It is a good idea to pay homage to our fathers out there even the one's who departed too early. Fathers don't often get praised for their contributions enough I'm afraid. Dad's typically have a unique way of looking at things.

       

      I get my sarcasm from my old man & you better be careful what you ask him because odds are he's going to be blunt, refreshingly honest, & tell you what he really thinks as opposed to what you want to hear.

      I lost my dad 2 years ago.  Gathered with my family and went to the remembrance mass, then to dad's marker and read from his favorite book 2 weeks ago on the anniversary of his passing.  We had a memorial breakfast after that. The world has changed since he left

       

      My husband is working on Sunday as he always does, luckily he has the early shift and will be home in time for dinner.  My daughters are coming up. Not sure what the dinner plans are.  I expect it will be unreasonably hot as it has been so, anything cold and inside is ok by me
